An Enduring Love Story: Peter Reckell and His “Diva” Wife of 24 Years

Peter Reckell, best known for his role as Bo Brady on the beloved TV soap opera “Days of Our Lives,” has captivated audiences with his talent and charm. But there’s more to this talented actor than meets the eye. Reckell is also a devoted husband and a loving father who has been happily married for an impressive 24 years.

After spending 23 years on “Days of Our Lives,” Reckell bid farewell to the show when his character met a dramatic end in the arms of his on-screen wife, Hope Williams Brady. This departure in 2015 marked the end of a era for Reckell and his co-star Kristian Alfonso as well. But interestingly, this wasn’t the first time Reckell left the show. He took a break from the persistent filming schedule back in 1987 and explored other opportunities. However, he couldn’t resist the pull of “Days of Our Lives” and returned a few years later.

Reckell’s talent and dedication to his craft took him on different paths, from low-budget films in Russia to musical theater. But it was his role on “Days of Our Lives” that provided him with financial security and widespread fame. And after making enough money to last him a while, he made the difficult decision to leave the show for good, leaving fans wondering about his future in the acting world. However, there have been hints of his possible return, keeping the fans’ hopes alive.

While Reckell tends to be private about his personal life, we can catch a glimpse of it through his wife, Kelly Moneymaker. Reckell and Moneymaker have been together for over two decades, having met after the end of Reckell’s first marriage to his “Days of Our Lives” co-star, Dale Kristien. Moneymaker herself is a talented musician, known for her work as a vocalist and her collaboration with the band Exposé in the 90s. Recently, she had a reunion show with the band in Washington state, showcasing her enduring talent.

To celebrate their 24 years together, Moneymaker shared two heartfelt photos on social media. The first image captures the couple on their wedding day, smiling and embracing each other with a scenic lake in the background. In the second photo, taken more recently, the couple can be seen happily cooking together, their grey hairs and wrinkles reflecting the passage of time. Moneymaker captioned the photo with gratitude for the adventures they’ve shared and the bond they’ve built over nearly 30 years.

This loving couple is also proud parents to their 15-year-old daughter, Loden Reckell. While they prefer to keep their daughter out of the public eye, they occasionally share glimpses of her, like when Reckell posted a photo of her at a student march for climate change awareness, affectionately referring to her as his “little environmentalist.”

Reckell’s devotion to his family extends to his support of his wife’s career. He often takes to social media to wish her luck before her shows and has always championed her success. It’s clear that their love and partnership have stood the test of time.

In their commitment to a sustainable future and population control, Reckell and Moneymaker have made the decision to have one child. They adore their daughter and enjoy raising her, but they understand the importance of limiting their impact on the environment. This conscientious choice reflects their values and dedication to a healthier planet.

Peter Reckell lives his life with purpose, not only as a talented actor but also as a devoted husband, father, and environmentalist. He practices yoga and pilates to stay fit and opts for eco-friendly transportation, like riding his bike or driving an electric car. Reckell’s genuine warmth and commitment to his family make him an inspiration to all.

In the ever-changing world of soap operas, Peter Reckell’s enduring love story stands out. Through the ups and downs of life, he and his “diva” wife have remained steadfast and continue to celebrate their love and shared adventures. And as fans, we eagerly anticipate what the future holds for this remarkable actor and his remarkable family.
